1. Firefighters in California are in a desperate battle to defend giant sequoias

Like glaciers or coral reefs, it is another example where climate change threatens some of the most beautiful sights on our planet.

2. The changing climate changes the planet, including some of the most beautiful sights that you may see in your lives.

From the magnificent glaciers in the mountains to the coral reefs in the oceans, we destroy the most iconic examples of nature.…

3. I remember how amazed I was in the 1990s when seeing some of these enormous trees in California.

Standing on the forest floor and looking up, they seemed to grow into infinity.

Scarborough meltdown alert!

Watch as Psycho J0E calls conservatives whiners, losers and sn❄️wflakes.
Their playbook is so obvious:

Step 1: Invoke Trump’s name.
Step 2: Project that the Republicans will claim election f***d.
Step 3: Commit massive amounts of f***d.
Step 4: “See, I told you they would claim we cheated!”
Step 5: Rinse. Wash. Repeat.

(Thread 1/3): Joined @CortesSteve and @JennPellegrino on @newsmax this evening to discuss #Antifa extremist Gabriel Gipe being fired by @NatomasUSD. Radical teachers like this have permeated schools across #California.
(2/3): The school put out a statement earlier today saying that the classroom propaganda was installed this year - that's not true. @MrAndyNgo busted that myth with photographic evidence.
(3/3): These people are echoing failed propaganda from failed movements. We have a corrosive and violent ideology permeating our schools, and sending our children out into the street to participate in riots. This is not fringe, its commonplace in #California.

The pandemic is accelerating in California. I know this because I looked at the actual data. There's a backlog of:
🔸40K+ tests
🔸10K+ cases
🔸1000+ deaths

Also, hospitalizations are rising, especially among kids

Aside: Analyzing COVID-19 data according to NorCal vs SoCal is 🤔
Here are #California pediatric #COVID19 hospitalizations: clearly still trending up
Here are #California #COVID19 hospitalizations: clearly still trending up (Florida actually seems to have peaked)

State-level jobs report will be released today. @BLS_gov @TXWorkforce

Key to watch is how about half of states that rejected the federal unemployment bonus compare with other nearly half that hasn’t.

#Texas @GregAbbott_TX correctly rejected it starting June 26. #txlege @TPPF
States that have ended the federal unemployment bonus (rate 1.14%) had a 4.7% faster job creation rate last month than those that didn’t (1.09%).

Econ 101: Incentives matter.

#bls @BLS_gov @TXWorkforce @TPPF #txlege
Year over year: Texas’ job growth rate was 6% through July compared with California’s 5.5%, Florida’s 4.2%, and New York’s 7% (was hit harder by the pandemic shutdowns earlier than the others).

#Florida, #Texas, and #California account for nearly half of all #COVID19 deaths that took place inside a hospital yesterday

Despite getting a later start, the rate of increase for California is accelerating; daily in-hospital deaths may surpass Florida & Texas within 3-4 weeks

Democratic governors have no excuse for what's about to happen to school children in their states. Like their GQP counterparts, they had access to every resource necessary to keep children safe. Instead they cherry-picked advisors, data, metrics, and talking points. It's shameful
Blaming school boards and local districts for following state policy is passing the buck at best, and victim blaming at its worst. Further, it’s an insult to parents who lived under executive orders that were meant to protect business and special interests
If you think that I won't notice that you're fudging the numbers by removing dozens of pediatric hospitalizations over the span of a few days or delaying the release of tests results with very high positivity rates: I've seen higher profile officials thrown under the bus for less

1. Will #Egypt and #Ethiopia go to war over water? As the planet is stressed with more frequent and more serious droughts water is becoming a major issue threatening peace. Not only in regard to the Egyptian/Ethiopian dam dispute but #Turkey shut down water entering both #Syria
2. and #Iraqi #Kurdistan as part of Turkey's Kurdish ethnic cleansing. In Iran, demonstrations over water in an authoritarian dictatorship show the intensity of water as an issue and what people are willing to risk to prevent their water from being cut off. The US is not immune.
3. Las #Vegas faces water shortages as its water continues to supply #California. Lack of rational legal frameworks and shared responsibility for the resources will be points of tension here and may also lead to wars abroad. I took quick look at the Egyptian Ethiopian problem.
